Coffee: Ritual Seasonal Espresso – Dark Horse (11/2/2015, 11/14/2015, 11/23/2015)

I’ve been making a latte every morning since Sam surprised me with a La Pavoni for my birthday in 2012.  I’m finally getting around to taking notes on all the different bags of beans we’ve been getting.  I’ll be backfilling the notes I’ve been taking from a notebook, so some of the roast dates will be out of order.  Also, bear with me, as I learn to take better notes on coffee.
